IEEE’s Engineering Your World contest – submit your video

The IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year, and one of the things that they are sponsoring is a contest called Engineering Your World where they’re inviting folks to submit videos showing off the use of engineering/technology in enhancing life in fun and/or interesting ways.

The grand prize winner makes off with a $500 gift certificate. Hurry, submissions end July 6. Here is a cheesy, but good example of a video you could submit:

Here’s some guidance:

Videos can be funny: Think Back to the Future’s opening scene, Pee-Wee Herman’s morning breakfast routine and Ferris Bueller’s “I’m still in bed and awfully sick” door-to-mannequin trick, or they can be serious, too, whatever you prefer. IEEE is simply asking people to showcase the cool ways in which they’ve made their lives easier or a little more interesting via innovative thought, engineering and creativity.
